On tap at the source.
Pitch black with a dark beige head. Really great retention and lacing, not to mention some gnarly oilly legs.
Nose is pretty epic. Vanilla, toffe and brown sugar are the first scents that come to mind. Rich dark berry notes as well.
Taste follows smell. Huge peaty and smokey notes up front. For awhile the smokiness is overwhelming, but as I get used to the smokiness different flavors come to the surface. Huge dark fruits, some plumb/fig, oak, spicey rye, hints of rye whiskey. There is a bit of a rubbery flavor which is somewhat distracting.
Mouthfeel is full bodied, well carbonated, a touch viscous, and spicey.
The rubber like note is unfortunate. Otherwise a pretty rad beer.
Serving type: on-tap
